Bio Alison Van Uytvanck is a Belgian professional tennis player.
Van Uytvanck has won four international & one 125K title on the WTA tour, as well as nine singles titles and one doubles title on the ITF tour in her career. On October 26, 2015, she reached her best singles ranking of world No. 41, and her best doubles ranking of world No. 106.

Van Uytvanck was born in the small town of Grimbergen to René Van Uytvanck and Krista Laemers. She started playing tennis at age 5 when her older brother Sean introduced her to the game. She also has a twin brother named Brett.
Van Uytvanck graduated high school at Sint-Donatus in Merchtem. As a junior, she alternated between training with local coach Sacha Katsnelson and the Flemish Tennis Association, where she has been coached by Ann DeVries. Her tennis idol is Roger Federer, and she also admires compatriot Kim Clijsters. Van Uytvanck is in a relationship with fellow Belgian tennis player Greet Minnen.

In 2011, she won 4 ITF singles titles in Vale Do Lobo (Portugal), Dijon (France), Edinburgh and Sunderland. She also reached the final in Tessenderlo (Belgium) where she lost to Anna-Lena Grönefeld.

She took part in the 2011 Brussels Open where she entered as a qualifier by defeating Margalita Chakhnashvili 6–3, 6–2 (1st round of qualifying draw), Laura Siegemund, 2–6, 6–4, 6–3 (2nd round of qualifying draw) and Hsieh Su-wei, 6–4, 2–6, 6–4 (3rd round of qualifying draw). She faced Patty Schnyder in the 1st round of the main draw and defeated her 6–3, 2–6, 6–2. In her next match against a compatriot, the Belgian Yanina Wickmayer, she ultimately lost 7–6(2), 6–4.

She also qualified for the main draw at 's-Hertogenbosch, where she lost to Alexandra Dulgheru.

In 2012, she won a fifth ITF singles title in Glasgow, and reached the final in Kaarst (Germany). In February, she debuted in the Fed Cup against Serbia, where she was chosen by coach Ann Devries over Kirsten Flipkens in the deciding doubles rubber. Partnering Yanina Wickmayer, they lost the match (and by extension, the tie) in 3 sets.

She took part in the 2012 Brussels Open where she received a wild card into the main draw. She defeated Ksenia Pervak in her first round match and then beat Chanelle Scheepers in three sets to advance to her first WTA quarterfinals, where she was defeated by top seed and world No. 3 Agnieszka Radwańska in straight sets. Van Uytvanck went on, having more success on the ITF circuit.

In 2013, Van Uytvanck won her first WTA title by winning the 2013 OEC Taipei WTA Ladies Open in which she defeated Dinah Pfizenmaier in the semi-finals and compatriot Yanina Wickmayer 6–4, 6–2 in the final.

In 2014, she played in the main draw of all four of the Grand Slam tournaments and reached the second round at Wimbledon for the first time in her career.

In 2015, she reached the quarterfinal of the French Open which she lost in two sets to Timea Bacsinszky. She reached her career-high ranking of No. 41 later that year, in October. However, a growth on her right ankle resulted in her missing a number of tournaments in the 2016 clay court season, including the 2016 French Open, and her failure to defend her quarterfinalist points from 2015 caused her to fall out of the Top 100 in June 2016.

In 2017, after long injury hiatus, Van Uytvanck won the first title of her career at Tournoi de Quebec beating Timea Babos 5–7, 6–4, 6–1.

In 2018, Van Uytvanck won her second title in February at Hungarian Ladies Open defeating Dominika Cibulková in a long three-set battle in the final. She eliminated defending champion Garbine Muguruza in the second round of Wimbledon, losing just three games after dropping the first set 5–7. It was her first win over a top 10 opponent and arguably the best match performance of her career so far. After a win over Anett Kontaveit in the third round, she lost in the fourth round to Daria Kasatkina.

In February of 2019, Van Uytvanck successfully defended her title in Budapest, defeating Markéta Vondroušová in the final. In September, she won the 2019 Tashkent Open. She did not drop a set until the final, where she defeated fifth seed and 2008 champion Sorana Cîrstea in three sets.
